Mood: Enjoying myself as I looked crazy
Soundtrack: The Film Vault / The Killers "All These Things That I've Done" / Counting Crows "Recovering the Satellites"
While I understand that there are many music critics who would rather be dipped in molten lava than subject themselves to Counting Crows music, I simply don't care. I like them. I like the fact that Adam Duritz never sings a song the same way twice, and I like that he gets REALLY into his songs. On the final stretch on this run, I found myself singing along really loudly with every song that was rolling through my earbuds. I'm sure I looked and sounded like a crazy person, but I can live with giving off that vibe. I was having fun.
As I entered the home stretch of this run, I was singing along to "Daylight Fading" as the daylight was fading. It was oh so fortuitous, it also helped that the sun setting was creating some lovely skies and the park I was running through looked so nice. I couldn't help it, I was in a great mood. A great singing, running, happy, silly mood...and the world looked pretty. It was truly a great way to start out a weekend.
